<p>Project for Accelerated Sharing of Treatment Results to Meet Novel Challenges -- <a href="https://osf.io/qw54t/wiki/home/" rel="nofollow">https://osf.io/qw54t/wiki/home/</a></p> <p>KEY POINTS</p> <p>• Potential to Quickly Win the War on COVID-19</p> <p>• Utilize Evidence From, By and For Physicians and Clinics.</p> <p>• Bridge the gap between "anecdotal" and "gold standard" evidence for promising treatments</p> <p>• Without an IRB, you may treat patients as usual, tabulate results and share them. No ethical, privacy or regulatory issues are involved. (See suggested form Dataset.xlsx in Files section).</p> <p>• With an IRB, you can quickly do safe, simplified controlled trials. See suggested crossover trial design in Datasets wiki.</p> <p>• Retrospective and current data both welcome.</p> <p>• We wish to share your data as widely and quickly as possible. For maximum effect we will also prepare a more formal study for submission to peer-reviewed journals. Contributors will be mentioned by name, if they wish.</p> <hr> <p>This project is also the first step in launching a new scientific journal to explore and evaluate neglected sources of evidence – findings from a great field. Your research papers are also wanted.</p> <p>A major focus here is on hydroxychloroquine and zinc deficiency, but this project is open for objective data on any promising treatments.</p> <p>Empowering individual physicians and clinics, and evaluating therapies that boost our immune system, holds great promise to help society react rapidly enough to face new viral challenges.</p> <p>Questions</p> <p>Why do some people die and others barely get sick from this virus? Is this primary line of inquiry being pursued?</p> <p>Thanks to science and innovation, we are an advanced high-tech society. Has our coronavirus response been up to our best level?</p> <p>Not really. Imagine a middle school science teacher asks this question: "Class, suppose a doctor finds a cure that he says is helping save a lot of lives. How will society respond?</p> <p>A. Ask him to document his claim.</p> <p>B. See if other doctors get similar results.</p> <p>C. Ignore him.</p> <p>D. Make him apply for FDA approval first.</p> <p>The right answer, of course, is A and B, to use the scientific method. That is what this project is about.</p> <p>Contact: fieldtrials at berkeley edu</p>
